An In-Depth Look at S-Flex Couplings

S-Flex are known for their simplicity and reliability. With no need for special tools for installation or removal, these couplings are user-friendly and versatile, fitting into a wide range of applications.

Key Features of S-Flex Couplings

  • Easy Installation: Their simple design allows for straightforward assembly.
  • Maintenance-Free: Once installed, they require no further upkeep.
  • No Lubrication: These couplings operate smoothly without the need for lubrication.
  • Vibration Damping and Shock Control: S-Flex couplings can absorb vibrations and control shock effectively.
  • Torsionally Soft: Their design allows for a certain degree of torsional flexibility.
  • Double Engagement: The couplings engage both the driving and driven shafts for reliable performance.

Design and Performance

The S-Flex coupling design includes three parts: two flanges with internal teeth and an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth. Torque is transmitted through the flanges mounted on both driver and driven shafts via the sleeve. Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve. This coupling is well-equipped to handle impact loads due to its shear characteristic.

Customizable Assemblies

The S-Flex coupling offers flange and sleeve combinations that can be assembled to accommodate specific applications. Thirteen sizes are available with torque capacities ranging from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs. The flanges are available in five variations made from zinc or cast iron. Sleeves come in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to cater to diverse application requirements.

Protection Capabilities

The S-Flex coupling provides protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration. It can accept up to 0.062 inches of parallel misalignment without wear. Axial movement of about 1/8 inch is acceptable. It can effectively handle angular misalignment up to 1 degree. The coupling's EPDM and Neoprene sleeves offer torsional wind-up flexibility of 15 degrees at their rated torque.
